So i installed Windows 7 RTM 7600 x86, and when i installed Windows the network was already working without having to install any drivers.
The problem is that some websites hang and dont load, and when i switch on the computer the network icon on the taskbar says no internet access until i open internet explorer. i even tried the websites in Firefox same issue, they hang.
It doesn't happen all the time and it isn't just 3 or 4 websites, it can be many websites.
So i went to the drivers page on Dell website and download the network driver for my PC (Dell website says its Intel 825xx 10/100 Platform LAN Connect Device)
so i try to install it and it says "cannot install drivers. No Intel(R) PRO adaptors are present in this computer"
this didn't happen in Windows Vista or Windows 7, and i tried downloading the latest version from Intel site (i think) and the same error happened.
Is that that the drivers are bad or wrong, or is there another problem why the websites hang because they dont hang on my brothers XP machine and he's on a wireless connection, my connection is wired.
This is a print screen of the network connection properties, which says that is my adaptor.
